First time fanjo waxer with questions

I'm having my first ever....ahem...intimate wax tomorrow morning.

It's the all off bar the landing strip type.

Can any of you professionals or seasoned waxees help a gal with the following questions?!

1. How long should the hairs be for the best possible result?

2. Is it the norm to keep your knickers on? What are the best type to wear?

3. Is it really the norm to have to get on all fours for the.....rear area blush?!

4. How painful is it? Am planning to take a couple of ibuprofen before I go.

5. Is it embarrassing?

6. How long does it take for any redness to go down?

1/4 cm

For what you are having done - no. Nothing, or salon knickers.


8/10 - take pain killers beforehand for first time.

For you? Perhaps, Very. For the Beautician? Not at all.

The same day/next day.

Ahem grin

As I suspected! Thanks caramel grin

Am a bit worried about the hairs being too long (I've stopped shaving for the last few weeks) but have read most places trim you if that's the case? Don't want to trim it myself in case I end up not leaving enough for the wax to be viable.

Lawks a mussy grin
